Poll: Which Summer Movie Are You Looking Forward to the Most in 2015?

2015

This past weekend was another down week at the box office.  As I mentioned in last week’s poll, the summer movie box office has been down around 20% over last summer.  Hollywood is in a near state of panic.  They keep telling themselves that 2014 is an off year because the big franchises are all taking the year off.  Instead, there is a pile up of anticipated movies next summer which Hollywood hopes will reverse the trend.

Pick as many movies as you like and vote as often as you like.  Also, if there is a poll topic you would like to see in the future, let me know in the comments section.

    No competition here. Avengers 2 is the only one of these films that I’m sure to see in its first weekend. Jurassic World and Ant Man may convince me when I see their trailers.

    Guardians of the Galaxy will be out later this week!

    • Yeah, Avengers should be the runaway winner here. It’s an event on a level of its own. Some of the others could be interesting. Odds are I’ll be at Minions with the kids opening weekend. Fantastic Four and Ant Man appeal to me. Jurassic World, Terminator and Mad Max have potential to me, but it will take good reviews.

      I’ll probably watch all of them eventually.

      I don’t know. Outside of Avengers, is this line-up really any better than this year’s line-up?

  2. I don’t know about Ted 2. I enjoyed the first Ted but did it really need a sequel?

    I’ll probably see Avengers 2 and I’ll definitely see Trainwreck, if only because I’m in it as an extra.

    • Oh and I’ll probably see Ant-Man. We’ll see about the others…

    • I have the exact same reaction to Ted 2. I think we covered everything there was to say about a vulgar talking teddy bear in the first film.

        Yeah I enjoyed the original Ted. But it was a one-joke movie and this is trying to stretch it. Every time I see a sequel to a movie that does not need one I’m reminded of this story Kevin Smith once told:

        He’d been offered a couple of screenwriting gigs. One was for a Superman movie that Tim Burton was going to direct. The other was for a planned sequel to Beetlejuice called “Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian”. In response to the latter he responded:

        “Didn’t we say everything that needed to be said in the original Beetlejuice? Must we go tropical?”

  3. Magic Mike? Are we having fun again? There is no Roman numeral XXL.

    • I think that means extra large, RB.

      • I just saw the trailer for next summers’ Mad Max film. I gotta say, it looks pretty darn impressive! Oh, just seeing that classic V-8 Interceptor again brought a smile to my face. One of my favorite movie cars ever….

        The original Mad Max film was a terrific down-and-dirty independent film from Australia, and of course The Road Warrior is an outright classic in the action genre. A shame Beyond Thunderdome was such a disappointment. After watching this new trailer, for the first time in a few decades I’m actually excited for a Mad Max film again.

      • I THOUGHT you were making it up… well, I better see the first Magic Mike some time before next year then. Call it research.

  4. What looks good?

    The Avengers, because it would have to fall a long, long way short of the first film to not be at least reasonably watchable.

    Mad Max because Miller is making it and I’m interested to see his take on things over thirty years on from the first films.

    And Tomorrowland, because Brad Bird is a pretty creative guy so there’s a good chance it will live up to the interesting premise.

    Otherwise, a lot that looks cringeworthy.

    • That is NOT what Hollywood wants to hear right now. They are convinced that they have a winning line-up next year and praying that this year’s slump is a fluke.

  5. B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations bears an awful resemblance to R.I.P.D…
